Ust 3500 watt generator runs fine but have very little electrical output what can i check?


I'm getting reference that it a Gentron GG3500 which has brushes and an AVR.

With producing some voltage indicates that rotor is still partially magnetized at least. Note some will cost nearly as much as replace to whole generator.

Common Problems and solutions
  • Demagnetized rotor. Re-initialize
  • Bad brushes. Replace
  • Glaze contact rings. Clean
  • Shorted or open rotor. Replace
  • Bad AVR. Replace
  • Bad field supplying the AVR voltage control voltage. Replace alternator stator.

My eg2800 generator is putting out 150 volts, why


Loaded circuit or open circuit? If loaded, brushes need cleaning before buying parts. Check manual for procedure on your model. The brushes are usually culprit. Make sure cleaned and tension springs are free. Use compressed air to clean out armature area where brushes located. Re install and test. If better but not fixed replacement brushes may be needed. If open ckt voltage is high this could be normal. Suggest you email product support to be sure.

My 3 kva generator carbon brush detoriate with in 30 minutes ?


Ring where carbon brush makes contact must be very smooth with no pits or out of round or brush will wear very fast due to arching. Ring is replaceable however lots of work. Good luck

Coleman powermate generator won't generate


Check rotor again and measure to see if you have DC voltage on the brushes while running. If no then suspect capacitor

My generator is not producing any power how do I go by exciting the brushes


Simple way is to use a small battery charger (1 or 2 amp) and momentarily contact brushes (very quick swipe). You must watch polarity. Check your manual; generally the positive brush is the one closest to the bearing. Oftentimes problem is brushes have worn and are not contacting rings. Examine commutator rings for smooth surface. Remove diode board and check for leaking capacitor. If it is split open, burned or swollen replace as needed. Good luck

Generator starts but does not generate power


  1. Check for any blown fuse and replace. It can be traced directly from the output lines.
  2. Check field excitation. The field excitation is supplied by the battery to the excitation coil through a pair of carbon brushes. If the brushes are worn out, no excitation field is supplied and no output is generated. Replace carbon brush if found worn-out.
  3. Use an analog multitester to check the continuity of the carbon brush and the field coil.

Coleman 5000 generater-no AC output


have you conected the brushes on the right way? the leads are + and -.

you can run it up and use a 12v battery and connect it to the brushes correct polarity, with the othe LEADS removed and taped can shock you and chect the out put it it around 100 120v chech the AVR or brush polarity.

If yours dont have brushes it will have a capasitor that is prob out of spec.

Generator dose not produce power,just stop working.


Check the rectifier board installed under gen cover that powers the brushes. This board has a capacitor about 1 inch long and 3/4 inch dia. If the capacitor looks swollen or burned replace board or carefully remove cap and replace with similar. You can use a larger capacitor with same rating, just tie cap to rear cover. Also check the condition of the brushes. Parts are not too expensive. Check with jacksmallengines on the web for parts. enjoy

Briggs & Stratton Burnt Brushes


Are you running something that has a high startup current? A well pump, air conditioner, air compressor, etc.
All of these things draw more than the rated power from your generator for a little while, then settle down and draw the regular rated power they have on the dataplate. This higher level of power is called the surge rating of the generator ( think the EXL8000 is something like 8250 watts for 30 seconds, check your manual) - if you regularly go over the surge rating you'll burn brushes, mess up slip rings, and potentialy kill a voltage regulator once in a while.

When we calculate how large a generator to use for an emergency backup system we add up all of the currents required by all of the things that have to run, then we calculate the maximum surge power for all the loads that have this requirement. We try and get a generator that will supply the "regular" load at 80% of it's rated capacity and still be able to handle the expected surge load. Sometimes we have to use a larger generator than needed for the regular load to get the surge load to be OK.

So you might need to trade up to the 10Kw Briggs to handle your load.
